Experience extraordinary healthy living at this distinguished Woodstock dwelling, a one of a kind Passive House offering an exemplary level of efficiency, safety and comfort. This low maintenance green home was engineered for the environmentally conscious buyer, using non-toxic and low carbon emitting materials. Certified by The Passive House Institute US, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Water Sense & Indoor Air Plus programs, NY Energy Star Homes, and the US Department of Energy Zero Energy Ready program, this resilient home boasts a HERS score of 9. If you or someone in your family suffers from environmental allergies, asthma, or chemical sensitivities—look no further. This home was completely built without the use of hazardous materials and irritants, and is foam-free. Constructed using autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), popularly used in Europe, the exterior walls, 17 inches thick, are super-insulated using Rockwool insulation. The concrete foundation and slab are insulated with 10 inches of cellular glass. Under the steel roof, 24 inches of cellulose provides an extraordinary thermal barrier. The high level of insulation also makes this a quiet home. The exterior is sheathed with fiber cement siding. The result of these thoughtful components is a low-maintenance structure resistant to fire, moisture, and pests. You will feel the superiority of this airtight home as soon as you step inside and close the door. Humidity level and indoor temperature barely change no matter the temperature or weather outdoors, due to its expert construction. In addition to comfort, musicians will be surprised how long stringed instruments stay in tune! Fresh air is continuously delivered via an energy recovery system that filters out dust & allergens, delivering the purest quality air. The home is on the electric grid but is almost entirely self-sustained by owned solar panels on the roof. Expert craftsmanship is complimented by triple-paned windows, high end cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances including induction cooktop and convection oven. Wonderful spacious and comfortable layout with two master suites—one on the first floor! Up the solid ash stairs, a large office and two more bedrooms await, including the second oversized, sunny master bedroom with walk-in closet and bathroom featuring both an extra long clawfoot tub and a spacious shower. The detached two-car garage has a 240 volt charging hook up, and is a craftsman’s dream. Above the garage is a wonderful airy apartment that was built with the same integrity, healthy materials and appliances as the main home, it too has an extraordinary HERS rating of 9. Aesthetically pleasing layout with high ceiling—perfect for guests or income. Enjoy a stroll on the ¼ mile wood-chip trail through the woods and enjoy the bounty from the organic garden and blueberry bushes. Numerous young fruit trees (apple, pear, cherry, plum, paw-paw) dot the property. Have to say it: Location, location, location! Just over a mile to the center of Woodstock on a quiet, dead end road, this home offers so much more than just a holistic and forward thinking approach to living.
